It was good to see BROWN PANTHER win first time out yesterday. I love that horse and have followed it since it first ran. Below are my best three for Monday. Hopefully the nap dropping in grade can run well again.
HIPSTER 1940 WINDSOR (nap) – (unplaced) he drops back down to his last winning mark over the same distance too. Has been running in classes above this and maybe punching above his weight. The ground should be fine, even if it eases and he has a great chance at 14-1 as I type this on Sunday night.
BELLE BAYARDO 1700 CHEPSTOW (nb) – (2nd – 7-2) has course and distance form and ran well here two runs ago. Has won at this class and above and has nothing of the class of his las conqueror here.
MANDY'S BOY 1600 CHEPSTOW (treble) – (non runner) ran off colour on Saturday but is worth another crack here on a track not as stiff as the Haydock finish. A reproduction of his Newbury run should see him win this. Hughes on board is another plus.

Guineas weekend over! I thoroughly enjoyed it and fair play to Richard Hughes who finally gets a British classic, and how he deserves it. What a glorious day it is today for a change on a Bank Holiday! Enjoy it. Here are my best three plus another for today. Roll on Chester!
SPIC N SPAN 1745 BATH (nap) – (unplaced) has been knocking on the door recently and will enjoy the firm ground today. He has won over course, distance, class and ground in the past and is also well drawn today. A hell of a chance to take this.
MOONSTONE MAGIC 1650 CURRAGH (nb) – (3rd – 5-2) has been off since disappointing in the Guineas last year. She has won over the distance and will appreciate the yielding ground. A long absence to overcome but I think they have been sensible and put her away until the right time/race. Today s the day!
ILLUSTRIOUS PRINCE 1430 WINDSOR (treble) – (3rd – 11-2) is 4lbs lower than when taking a 6f race on good at Goodwood last year. The apprentice will help with the weight and he has never run in a class this low. The best horse in the race in my opinion and Declan Carroll has a decent strike rate when he comes down to Windsor. Chance!
HIPSTER 1635 WINDSOR – (3rd – 5-2) worth a chance taking this one to beat SEA SHANTY. The 6lb raise for the favourite may tell if my selection bounds out in front and takes them on. As we saw over the weekend a lot of horses went in from the front. They should go for the jugular and lead from the front.
